Looking For Large Capacity IMAP Email Hosting

Jul 22, 2008

I would like to find a host with good quality & uptime that has large disk capacity for hosting IMAP email, about 10 to 20 gigs in size per domain.

I know of places like Bluehost and powweb but I'm not crazy about the 'overselling' issues related to them....

Any Ideas?

Dedicated Server With Very Large Storage Capacity

Mar 8, 2008

I have found SL can offer you 12*1 TB drive based systems, after RAID-5 and Win 2003 install you get just over 10 TB of storage. The monthly price works out to $1000/Month.

I know some time ago LeaseWeb offered these type of storages....any one else know of any others ?

Amazon S3 works out to about $1500 for 10 TB

Hosting Account With Large Email Attachments Allowed

Jul 21, 2009

I have a customer who needs to move her existing hosting to another provider. The one thing she likes about the existing provider, however, is an allowance of Email attachments of 50-75MB in size. Most limit you to 10-20MB. Does anyone know of a hosting provider that would accomodate this?

Where To Go When Shared Hosting Capacity Runs Out

Jan 20, 2008

I have a website currently hosted on a Godaddy shared hosting plan.

Visitors to the site have reported getting "Service Unavailable" messages at times. When I talked to Godaddy about this, they say I am exceeding the limits they put on simultaneous page requests (or something to that effect). For my plan this limit is set at 100.

I upgraded to their highest shared hosting plan, and this limit now goes up to 150 simultaneous requests. This will probably solve the problem for a while, but I think the site will grow enough to have a problem at 150, and I need to figure out what to do when this happens.

The site currently gets about 4800 visitors a day, and uses around 5 gb of bandwidth per day.
The site is: BuildItSolar dot com


- Am I likely to find a shared hosting plan that is better on this limit than Godaddy?

- Is the site getting large enough that some form of virtual dedicated server or dedicated server is going to be necessary?

- Godaddy offers virtual dedicated servers, and dedicated servers. I wonder what I would need to go to solve the problem, and provide some capacity margin for growth?

Is the lowest level of virtual dedicated server really going to provide any better performance than the shared hosting plan I have now? Godaddy was not very helpful on answering these questions.

- Any recommendations for virtual dedicated server or dedicated server outfits that are good?

Sorry about so many questions on my first post. Wish I knew more about this whole hosting thing.

IMAP Email With MediaTemple

Apr 10, 2005

Is anyone else out there hosting IMAP email with MediaTemple? I am trying to transfer IMAP accounts to MediaTemple after switching from an email only provider, MailSnare. I use Mac Mail as my email client and am having trouble getting my accounts set up properly. It seems to have to do with my path to IMAP.

I've tried everything including:


Different techs at mediatemple told me to use /mail and INBOX. but neither work properly. For the most part, I have been able to see my mail, but not my folders, or not all of my folders, or I've gotten repeated warnings that IMAP command "SELECT" failed. In one of my accounts now I can't see the mail at all, but the account is telling me there is 1 unread message. My problem seems to have been complicated by all the messing around with the preferences trying to fix things. If it makes any difference, the email address for the account is the same as it was with my previous host. I wonder if that's causing a problem when trying to access the mail in Library/Mail?

Want To Setup SSL For IMAP Email And Their Cpanels

Feb 8, 2008

I have a couple questions maybe some of you can help me with -

I have a dedicated server and many hosted customers, I want to setup SSL for IMAP email and their cpanels.

Instead of purchasing individual SSL certificates for each domain. I was thinking to just use my hostanme (eg host.myhostname.net) and direct them to that as I have seen the option in WHM.

My question is can I use an SSL cert for email that will act as a "fleetwide" SSL cert?

For example instead of using mail.theirdomain.com could I just use mail.myhostname.com and would it give them SSL without warnings? Of course they would set their email client to mail.myhostname.com..

Is it safe or recommend to use your hostname? I read somewhere to never use your hostname as a domain.. so not sure.

Need Advice: Very Reliable Email, IMAP, Storage, Small B2b Business

Apr 2, 2008

I'm looking for quality hosting at the right price for a small business. I have been searching these forums, but just got no conclusion, and would appreciate any advice concerning 'features' and 'providers' that I shall look at or avoid.

My needs are:

- very reliable email, with IMAP, good spam filtering, and ability to handle Challenge Response type system;

- rSync and storage of company internal documents (intranet like);

- host a small static website of a small b2b company, with little but valuable traffic;

- handle multiple (non limited) addon domains;

- for the near future: mysql, Ruby on Rails (need to explore it), Python and a good Content Management System;

- good stats tracking tools -- ability to log a list of sessions would be great;

- control panel doesn't matter, ssh would be nice;

- datacenter location doesn't matter too much, connectivity, reliability, and uptime do;

- 5~10GB storage mainly email and internal docs;

- 1GB traffic mainly email;

- preferably with a community forum - I trust more on those who have it, and have nothing to hide;

Do you think I can get something reliable for under $10/month or $100/year ?

I have found these options:

GeekStorage - looks great, LiteSpeed is appealing, people behind it look experienced, I was almost signing for it when I was caught by several issues with long downtimes (over 24h) during the last 2 months;

MediaLayer - also offers LiteSpeed, good comments by many on here, but no listed prices - why hidding the prices? are they trying to screw our bucks? that doesn't sound good to me;

HostGator and LunarPages - very popular, but they don't seem the thing for me, maybe for those with blogs, forums, or GoogleAds oriented websites, I get puzzled how can they offer 600GB for $7.95/month !?

FusedNetwork, Steadfast, DowntownHost and many others - seem to be oriented to lower storage and higher traffic, the opposite of my case.

I know I can get dedicated storage services, but a large amount of my storage need is for email which need to be synchronized through IMAP. BTW, can IMAP be used to synchronize files beyond messages?

Plesk 11.x / Linux :: IMAP Incoming Email - Connection Error

Oct 15, 2014

I have a client with a dedicated server running. Spec below.

The problem I am having is with incoming email. When I set up a new email account it can take about 10 attempts to log on to the incoming mail server. Once it has connected it will be ok for a short while then I will get a connection error and no emails will come through.

This is happening across all platforms, PC / MAC / iPhone and iPad.

Large Email Boxes + Cpanel

Jan 7, 2007

I ever seen a large mailbox be reliable, but now I have one that's mine and I have 8000 messages and 1.2gb. I can't even log into Horde webmail, if I use NeoMail its very slow, it takes 1 or 2 minutes to delete 100 messages or empty the trash. So I tried to setup the email account in Thunderbird and it times out. When I use POP3 thunderbird says it timed out but on the server I can still see the CPOP process for that user and it says it authenticating, if I try again to access it it says the mailbox lock is on, if I remove the lock same thing, no way to access it.

So any advise on how to access this large mailbox, perhaps there is a way to increase the timeouts?

Also whenever I try to do anything with the mailbox it increases the server load, from .20 or so it goes to 1, 2 even 3+

Dedicated Server For Large Scale Legitimate Email Marketing

Apr 4, 2009

my main client wants to rehash his database. Now this is a 1.5m strong list. All legitimately collected with time/IP stamp, privacy policy, etc. These clients are from the online gambling industry (legally licensed).

The problem is many of these users subscribed to our services up to 4 years ago (not all are that old, but some are), and they haven't heard from us for up to 2 years (again, some heard from us more recently).

Anyway, I've never deal with that number of emails and potential bounces. Obviously, the first round of emailing will have a large number of bounces, but that will quickly subside.

So, can you guys point me to a quality dedicated server, with at least 4 IPs (hopefully 10) and that can handle this type of activy? I'll be glad to sign up under an affiliate link if I can get a good answer.

Horde Mail IMAP :: Auth_imap: Required IMAP Extension Not Found

Sep 2, 2007

I'm having trouble with horde it is giving me the following error:

Auth_imap: Required IMAP extension not found.

Now I pretty much know why that error is coming up I'm missing the IMAP module. What I don't understand is if it was their before why is it gone now. The last thing I did on the server was upgrade Perl.

I would like to get rid of this error but I'm afraid the only solutions will wipe my current setup. If of course their is a way to fix this error without ruining my current setup that would be a lot more useful

The main thing I want to do is retrieve an address book from the horde server. How would I go about finding where the address book is stored through the command line.

Thanks ahead of time for the help.

Hosting Large Flv Files

Oct 6, 2008

I have a customer who wants to sell access to videos of conferences he runs.

Each flv vid is approx 1 - 1 1/2 hors long approx 380MB each and there will be about 12 videos per conference.

approx 4 - 8 conferences per year.

My customer suggests 10 - 20 people will buy access to watch each video.

Access to watch the videos will be through a password protected webpage.

issue - the current site hosting company only allow uploads up to 150MB per file.

Can I host the flash videos elsewhere and deliver them through the password protected web page without anyone else being able to see them via server they are hosted on?

This would also reduce the bandwidth going through his current site server.

Large Scale GB Hosting And Other

Aug 27, 2008

I would like to have around 100 Gb with room to expand if possible.

This will be hosting for a radio station, archival material.

I am unsure of where to look, the sites I have seen are pretty small in scale as far as capacity.

Further, I would also like to be able to re-sell this, instead of just setting up a straight account.

Further if at all possible I would like to bundled with some other small hosting packages (wordpress sites) on a reselling basis.

Hosting Setup - Large Amount Of File Storage

Aug 21, 2007

on good hosting setups for getting large amounts of disk space.

I would like to be able to offer up to 2Gb storage space for 100s, maybe up to a few 1000 users - any solution should scale well. The files would be static files that might be up to 400Mb in size.

It would be nice to be able to give users FTP access to their disk space, although it's not a core requirement.

Reliable + Large + Good Network Hosting Company That Does Colo

Apr 22, 2008

I have a 1u server that I'm looking to colo. I looked around the forums but I can't seem to find exactly what I need.

I'd prefer if the hosting company was large, owned its own datacenter (as opposed to leasing), offered proactive (automated) monitoring services, remote reboot, and a superb network with little or no downtime.

I like liquidweb but it looks like they only have 500gb / month up and down or a dedicated line capped at 10mbps line. I need something in between, around 1000GB / month up and down with 100mbps port. Support doesn't really matter, nor does price.

VPS Capacity

Dec 22, 2008

This is my first post here, though I've been an occasional reader for a long time.

I currently have a VPS at Godaddy, plus shared hosting at Godaddy, 1and1, and Namecheap.

I'm very unhappy with Godaddy, and not terribly thrilled with 1and1. Also, I want to consolidate my sites.

I have appx. 25 sites, with plans for another 20-25. Most are either WP blogs, or static informational sites (using Xsitepro). Most are low-volume (appx. 100 visitors/day). A few, maybe 5, are low-medium volume (a few hundred visitors/day).

The sites are pretty basic, mostly Adsense, affiliate sales, and the like. No streaming anything except the occasional video clip.

I'm considering Futurehost's current offer for 50% off lifetime on their Titanium package w/ cPanel. This provides 1Gb RAM. Any reason to think this would not be adequate for my current and future plans (currently appx. 25 sites, going up to 50 within 12 months)?

I'm pretty sure bandwidth will be way more than adequate, I'm just wondering if a 1Gb VPS will be enough for all my sites.

Backup Capacity

Apr 1, 2009

A question about backups:

So, we have a dedicated server with 2 x 146GB SAS HDD Hot Plug (max 4-6) and running WHM/cPanel

the two disks are in RAID.

Noticed, cpanel wasn't making backups, so apparently we need to install additional disks for it to start to do so. cpanel makes 3 backups - daily, weekly, monthly; home directory is set to around 100GB. So does that mean we would need to put in two additional SAS disks per server just to manage backups or does anyone have other experience how this is best dealt with?

Windows Server Capacity

Jun 11, 2008

I am trying to develop plans for my small 'datacenter'. My Question is how many shared hosting users (sites) can be on one server. While this question is broad, please assume a general distribution of users (sites) and the following server configuration (and lets ignore the datacenter network/uplink for the meoment):

Xeon Quad Core 5410 processor
Windows 2003 or 2008 Server O/S

How about if a mySQL database is added (to the same server?)

I recently started looking at some of the panel systems and it seems that a typical configuration is 'all-in-one', that is a Web Server, Database and email server - do these perform well?

Is there any rule of thumb for Windows servers such as zz MB Ram per user; # of users per processor; # of user per processor core?

Server Specs / Capacity

Jan 9, 2007

I would like some advice and to see if this is a good approach to setup a server / web business.

The idea is to start off providing very basic web hosting functionality for smaller sites.

I was thinking about purchasing two similar or identical servers (RAID1 disks) + server fully mirrored.

In case 1 falls out the 2nd one takes over. DNS services is at startup located on other servers in the DC.

If this works out then I'd be looking at increasing servers with clusters or LVS.

I'm having a very hard time finding resources and information of the load and server capacity.

I was thinking about a system like this:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 , RAID 1 SATA disks (preferrably Raptor), 2 GB of RAM.

This would then be running LAMP. I would limit the traffic to 5-10GB transfer / month per account.
(most account would not nearly get up to this figure).

Is there a ballpark figure at about how many web sites this server could handle ?
Are we talking about 50 ? 20 ? 100 ?

Increasing Server Capacity / CPanel

Apr 13, 2008

I'm trying to start a website on a shoestring budget, but my programmer and host want to squeeze more out of us. We currently have a Custom VPS, w/cPanel and WHM. Everytime I try to upload a file(s) more than 10 mb, it will not go thru. My programmer told me to ask the server to increase capacity, they tell me it will cost me. My programmer says the same thing. Now if my programmer can do it, I assume it will be done through cPanel. Is there anyway I can do it myself, so for example, a file of lets say 25 mb will get uploaded? I have access to my cPanel.

Site Capacity Of Dedicated Server

Apr 3, 2008

What would be the site hosting capacity of a dedicated server in terms of numbers of small sites.

1000 visitors a day for example.

Perhaps 5 page views a vistor and each site having a VBulletin as a sub-domain.

Would it be best to run them all off one dedicated server or each site just off a small hosting plan?

For organizational purposes it seems the dedicated server would be the way to go?
